In an effective-yet-stupid move, hawkers for counterfeit World Series tickets in St. Louis are letting their customers snap photos of them as a kind of insurance policy.

Trouble is, that just leaves Cardinals fans with fake tickets, no money and a photo on their phone.

St. Louis Metropolitan Police are asking for information on these two men, who sold counterfeit tickets in two separate incidents Saturday afternoon. Police have received 80 reports of counterfeit tickets and arrested one suspected ticket seller, Police Chief Sam Dotson told reporters before Game Three.

"If you're looking for tickets, buying them from someone on the street you don't know probably isn't a good strategy," Dotson says.

Real tickets have a hologram and MLB logo.

Anyone with information about counterfeit tickets or about the two men pictured should call police at 444-5627.
